  • Step – 1: Sign up and log in to your account on the admissions portal using a valid email address.
  • Step – 2: You’ll see a set of instructions and certain eligibility criteria that you have to carefully go through and agree with.
  • Step – 3: You’ll be asked to enter a few personal details such as your name, father/guardian name, date of birth, gender, nationality, CNIC, domicile, and mobile number.
  • Step – 4: Now you’ll be asked to enter your permanent address, mailing address, and guardian’s address. Provide the details accordingly.
  • Step – 5: Next up, you’ll be asked to provide your latest photo. You can choose from one of the decent portraits of yourself, upload it on the portal, crop it as per your liking, and you’re done. However, do choose and crop the photo whereby your face is clearly visible.
  • Step – 6: Then you’ll be asked to provide you prior education details. Fill them out accordingly.
  • Step – 7: Now you’ll be asked to enter your NTS details. If you have a valid NTS result available, enter the details in the portal. If you’ve registered for the NTS test center and have a roll-no for it, add it to the screen.
  • Step – 8: Now, you’ll be asked to select the program of your choosing. You’ll be able to select 7 different options.
  • Step – 9: Here, you’ll be asked to upload the scanned copies of your documents. The mandatory documents shall be mentioned on the page.
  • Step – 10: Now, you’ll come across an optional step whereby, you’ll be asked if you want to avail of the hostel and transport facility and how you came to know of the institute, etc. You can skip this entire step if you’d like.
  • Step – 11: Here you’ll be asked to enter the bank details with branch code after submitting the fee. Also, if you have or are looking to apply for NTS through CUI, then you must upload the NTS challan details as well. You can download the NTS challan form from https://bit.ly/3dMKJwu
  • Step – 12: Finally, once the application is complete, you can either go back and review the application to see if anything is missed or needs changing, or you can just click on “submit application” and wait for the decision to come.

Mind you, the decision usually takes a few days and that this application process is similar for all programs. If you have any questions pertaining to this matter, you could always visit http://admissions.comsats.edu.pk/ or send your queries to admissions@comsats.edu.pk.

And that’s all there is to know prior to applying for admission to COMSATS University so far. It bears mentioning again that the dates have not yet been announced for the fall admission as of right now. To remain up to date on the whole situation, keep following the COMSATS university website.
